[texts]Women in state legislatures : representation and the policy process - Schumacher, Kristin L.
Women have not achieved equality in regards to political representation within theUS. This exclusion weakens the quality of the political debate and destabilizes the legitimacy of our democracy. However, inroads have been made in building a more representative democracy at both the state and federal level in the US. This study extends the literature regarding gender and representation, exploring the association between descriptive representation, legislative factors, civil society contexts and t...

[texts]Adversaries, psychology, social movements, and world politics - Turtledove, Nina Lois
Within philosophy we fmd at least two major paradigms with which it is possible to conceptualize the nature of reality: what I call the dualistic paradigm, and the integrated paradigm. Aspects of these worldviews are evidenced in the way we "deal" with adversaries, both on a psychological level and in our actions in the world. I argue that not only do these paradigms exist in philosophy and in the-actions of individuals, but they can be discerned in the events of history as well...

[texts]Modeling the Flow of PCL Fluid Due to the Movement of Lung Cilia - Chamsri, Kannanut
Cilia in the human lungs are moving hairs that aid in the movement of mucus. The layer that contains the cilia is called the periciliary layer, PCL, and the liquid in that layer the PCL fluid. We consider the PCL fluid as an incompressible viscous fluid, and we consider the cilia as a periodic array of cylinders that rotate about their base with height varying as a function of the angle. We seek a three-dimensional mathematical model of the PCL fluid slowly flowing due to the movement of the cil...

[texts]English language literacy for the native speaker - Blake, Christine Ellen
The desire to learn a new skill or polish an old one for better employment prospects inspires many adults to enroll in community colleges. However, being away from school for a long time or having struggled in K-12 schooling, can make that transition back to the classroom difficult for adult students. As part of enrollment, they take an entrance exam, and if they do not perform well one the English Reading and Writing portions, they may be identified as "illiterate" in Academic English, and are ...

[texts]Robust detection of frequency shift keying modulated signals - Hall, Adam
We derive and examine the Neyman-Pearson Detection of an FSK modulated waveform in white Gaussian noise. We specifically examine three cases: 1) detection when the waveform is known exactly; 2) detection when the waveform is known down to an unknown initial phase and; 3) detection of the waveform when the energy level is known but the signal is not. We then derive robust detection schemes where the noise comes from a broader class of stochastic processes and includes the possible occurrence of o...

[texts]Impacts of mountain pine beetle (dendroctonus ponderosae) and fire disturbances on forest ecosystem carbon dynamics and species composition - Caldwell, Megan K.
Forests play an important role in storing and sequestering carbon, where conifer forests in particular, store more than 33% within the terrestrial carbon pool. Disturbances, such as fire and insects, impact the amount of carbon that can be stored over time in conifer forests. Stand composition and structure, which plays an important role in carbon storage over time, may be altered by these large disturbances...

[texts]A design-based approach to teaching sustainability - Walter, Kim R.
We live on a finite ecological system, yet consume as though resources are unlimited. Current environmental data suggests many in the developed world are living beyond what the earth is able to sustain. The paradigms in which we operate continue to support a path of constant consumption that continues to exacerbate this problem. Technology educators can and should play a valuable role in working with students to question these paradigms through lessons that begin to engage students toward thinki...

[texts]Tracking spatiotemporal movements of dunlin (calidris alpina articola) migration through stable isotope analysis - Doll, Andrew Charles
This thesis describes my investigations into the migratory and breeding behaviors of Dunlin (Calidris alpina arcticola) using chemical signals contained within the tissues of these long-distance migratory shorebirds. The ratios of stable isotopes (δ13C andδ15N) in the tissues of these birds serve as an intrinsic record of past dietary consumption. By studying the variation of these ratios over time and between tissues, I was able to make inferences about past behaviors.Chapter I describes how ...
